Winter Melody at Crafts and Me

Morning Peeps,

It's Wednesday and time for another challenge at Crafts and Me. The fabby Vix has chosen "Moody Blues" as our theme and this is right up my street as Blue, especially electric, is my favourite colour. If I wear this colour and anyone ever says to me, you look good in that colour, my kids go, nooooooo, don't tell her that, everytime Mum sees that colour she says, that's my colour. So anyway, here's my colour, lol:-

Image is Winter Meloday available HERE

Isn't this image just fabulous.  She is one of the new range of Crafts and Me stamps by Lemon Shortbread.  I have added some trees to the background and was really pleased with the result.

She is coloured with a combination of copics and prisma pencils.  I did write the copic no.'s down so will try to add later.

Materials Used:-

Image "Winter Melody" available only from Crafts and Me
Tree stamp is by Lavina
Snow is a combination of flower soft and stardust stickles
Marianne Design Poinsetta Die & Swirls
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Papers by Bearly Mine Designs and stitched onto bazil cardstock
Pearls and velvet ribbon from stash
